Andre Smith could soon find himself with a new NFL team and it seems the Arizona Cardinals and Minnesota Vikings are his two most likely landing spots.

Smith visited the Vikings on Sunday and Monday but left without a contract as he also wants to visit the Cardinals before making a decision.

It seems the Vikings didn't want to let him leave, but, he's going to give the Cardinals a shot at impressing him before he makes a decision.

The Bengals drafted two offensive tackles in the first two rounds of the 2015 NFL Draft preparing for Smith's departure in free agency this year. And, while we know that didn't sit well with Andrew Whitworth, Smith has now said something that could be taken similarly.

Should that be taken to mean he didn't think the Bengals cared about him? It does come across that way.

Per Chris Tomasson, Smith also said the Vikings seem to have a close locker room, that Mike Zimmer is a "phenomenal guy" and that things went well on his visit in Minnesota, but, he feels his choice between the Vikings and Cardinals is 50/50.
